Saints running back Reggie Bush has been a hot topic this off-season — will he be released, traded, or resigned to a lower contract — everyone seems to have an opinion on what will happen but no one knows for sure. Not even Bush or the Saints know what will ultimately happen.
As his contract sits currently Bush will count for 16 million dollars towards the Saints salary cap and is scheduled to make an 11.8 million dollar salary for the upcoming season. He will never make that money with New Orleans.
Bush is a valuable commodity for the Saints, a jack of all trades so to speak, but his production on the field does not equal his whopping pay check and he knows that to stick with the team he must restructure his contract or play for a different team at lower pay anyways.
He is willing to do this and I think the Saints are willing to listen. As long as they can reach a respectable sum for both parties then Bush will remain a Saint for the foreseeable future.
